Bancroft Beer   |  2.5 / 4 / 6

Our daily drinker, named after the street our humble brewery rests on. Brewed with Pilsner and Maris Otter malt. Singularly hopped with Mosaic. Punchy notes of Satsuma orange rind, lychee flesh, and fresh blueberry muffin with a clean and crisp finish. 4.20% abv

Bancrofts with friends? How about a pitcher?  |  18


Vibrosa  |  4 / 6 / 8

Mixed fermentation saison brewed with French Saison yeast along with our #RusticAF mixed ferm culture and then allowed to mingle with a simple wort of 2-row and golden promise for over four months in stainless, and conditioned on a half barrel of fresh Valencia OJ and some zest. Vibrant, refreshing rays of sunshine, and much better than that shit that makes fun of the purple stuff. 6% abv.


Wheat Wooder   |  2.5 / 4 / 6

Hoppy American table beer brewed with 60% wheat. Hopped with El Dorado, Hallertauer Mittelfrüher, Simcoe, and Spalt Select. Light notes of peach ring and nectarine, whispers of freshly mixed dough, Meyer lemon, rolling grassy meadows, and gentle spice. A real hot South Philly summer delight. 3.8%  abv

 

Pils Mercato  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Created with our friends at DiBruno’s as a nod to their history and heritage and the original Italian Market storefront on 9th street. Brewed entirely with lovely German pilsner malt, we then took local Viva Leaf Tea tulsi basil infused honey and added it in the whirlpool to retain as much nuance as possible. Hopped in the kettle with fresh Spalter Select and Hallertauer Mittelfrüher, and then again post fermentation for that modern classic Italian pils profile. Aromas jump out of the glass with honey drizzled bread crust, rolling grassy fields, and gentle black currant. The flavor rides those same waves with a delightfully dry spicy finish. 5.2% abv

 
Destroy All Lines  |  3 / 4.5 / 7
Ultra crushable IPA brewed with 2-row barley and triple dry hopped with three of our favs, Mosaic, Cashmere, and Idaho 7. Bright and vibrant with tropical notes drenched in Lime Skunk, crushed kumquat, and mandarin pith. At 5% abv this one’s perfect for the Summer block party and bombing all night alike.


Energy Ball  |  3 / 4.5 / 7
IPA with a nice percentage of wheat. Hopped with Simcoe, El Dorado, Citra, Idaho 7, and Amarillo. Notes of all of the tropical things put into a blender, some mandarin orange, a hint of Juicy Fruit, and a hit of your favorite flower. damn fine at 7.3% abv

 

Tu Dee La  16oz can  |  7
Bumpin with oats and wheat, this IPA slaps with huge notes of guava jelly and passion fruit up front then lingering stone fruit and resin from the addition of Wakatu, Simcoe, Citra, and Mosaic. At 6% abv we gotta say if Bancroft was magically turned into an IPA, this might be it.
 
 

Cinnabar Island  |  4 / 6 / 8

Fermented from a base of refined cane sugar down to -zero and then conditioned on gallons and gallons of sweet and tart Cherry purée along with some house processed lime juice. The result is a wonderfully crushable fruit punch refresher with hints of cherry pie cooling on the window sill and key lime followed by a snappy quick dry finish. Take a sip and sail away! 6.5% abv

   

Five 25.4oz bottle  |  20
Our annual anniversary blend. This year’s blend is comprised of Chardonnay barrel aged saison originally brewed in the waning moments of 2019, then laid to rest in oak from our friends at Maple Springs Winery in Berks Co.  After two years of hibernation, we blended specific portions of each barrel and married them together along with fresh sour beer from our mixed fermentation program. The draft version is a refreshing yet complex Gueuze-like blend with lighter carbonation than its bottled counterpart and dripping with notes of nectarine and apricot, nuanced woodspice, vanilla, and a delightful cedary funk. 6.2% abv
 
 
Milanville Rouge 25.4oz bottle  |  21
Our take on traditional Belgian Framboise. Brewed in August of 2019 with American 2-row barley malt and aged Old World hops. Fermented with our RAF mixed culture atop that year’s harvest of raspberries from our Milanville, PA farm. Then transferred to oak barrels from our friends at Maple Springs Wine. Aged for two years and then blended this Spring and refermented on the both the 2020 raspberry harvest (frozen) and fresh 2021 harvest. Two years and three seasons of fruit come together in a beautiful bubbly beverage with jammy notes of raspberry tart, Pinot Noir soaked oak, effervescent funk, and elegant acidity. Naturally carbonated in the bottle. 6.2% abv
